Already on the track of another Cat... this one living in AZ. Owner says that plenum is toast. Is this a repop'd item and a fairly easy fix like it is on the Mustangs?

One of the things that I'm learning quickly is that there's not nearly the repop market for Cougars that there is for 'stangs.

The AC / heat is distributed through a hard cardboard box under the dash before running to the vents. It is not unusual for this box to have broken down over the years. Mustang repop plenums are often made of plastic, and cost about $14. Don't know if they're made at all for Cougars, or if it's an easy fix.

I could be wrong...but I believe that Cougars and Mustangs used the same plenum units. Call Mustangs Unlimited in Conn. to verify. They sell parts for both cars and can cross reference part numbers.

Nice Stang BTW...:D

oooohhh-----The HEATER plenum duh- Yep you can use the stang ones, cause they are the same part on both cars (non-ac equipped) Got one on mine, and it works fine---In fact my complete heater assy is from a mustang, cause I took out the factory ac.

yes the two are diffrent at least in the 69 70 as to the 67 68 im pretty sure they too are a diffrent configuration but they sell both just order the one for an ac unit.

My understanding after checking my catalogs and talking with Cascade Classics is that the AC-version plenum is only available from a donor vehicle. Unfortunately. :rolleyes:
